It's in Facebooks interest to have OSM be the best it possibly can.
Facebook doesn't want to be dependant on Google for map data, so they
are going to try and commoditise map data to improve competition.

Google just released Google Maps SDK for Unity, an API for app
developers to make Pokemon Go type games. OSM can't compete on that
kind of ease of development. I think Facebook will come out with
similar APIs to try and stop Google growing it's map data market share.

This is the iOS vs Android fight, except Google is Apple and Facebook
is Google. Competition is a good thing.
